Futterman, Sorokin Chop Bubble

mnuwwarah • Level 19: 4,000-8,000, 1,000 ante
Brandon Cantu

After Brandon Cantu went bust, the tournament was on the bubble. At Cantu's old table, Nika Futterman jammed 65,000 in the cutoff and Matt Glantz shoved over in the small blind to chase away the big. Glantz's {j-Hearts}{j-Diamonds} crushed Futterman's {10-Hearts}{10-Clubs}, especially after he flopped a set and turned quads.

Meanwhile, there was an all-in pot at the other table. Vinicius Lima looked like he had three-bet a Maxim Sorokin open to 44,000, and he tank-called a four-bet ship for 177,000.

Lima: {a-Spades}{q-Spades}
Sorokin: {5-Hearts}{5-Diamonds}

The board ran out {2-Diamonds}{10-Diamonds}{7-Spades}{7-Hearts}{a-Hearts}, giving Lima aces for the win on the river.

As both players were eliminated the same hand at different tables, they chopped 15th-place money.
